The story of a malicious septuagenarian loan-shark who develops a fixation with the beautiful daughter of one of his customers.

"Paolo Sorrentino's third feature THE FAMILY FRIEND expands the maverick helmer's singular vision, though this time he's crafted a more complex world to illustrate his philosophy: everyone steals, and everyone is unhappy. "
Jay Weissberg, Variety
